powell was a key figure here. he wrote this memorandum as a private lawyer for the chamber of commerce in 1971 saying, "we need a counter-attack against the environmentalists and the labor unions and so on." and developed a whole strategy for kind of a corporate takeover of the judiciary and politic. >> by the way, you said something very important. justice lewis powell, then a lawyer in virginia, wrote this for the chamber of commerce, later became appointed by richard nixon to the supreme court. >> just several months later. >> many people look at the "powell memo" as the charter -- >> the foundational, the foundational document. >> and the first big case in this direction was the "first national bank of boston versus bellotti" case, which he wrote the decision on. and what it said was corporations -- the identity of the speaker is irrelevant, which becomes the key -- >> what does that mean? >> what it means is you can't tell corporations that they can't put their money into politics just because they're a corporation. which has, i guess, a surface plausibility to it. but then would

never was although he gave his vote on the commerce clause to the other for conservatives, but i always thought he would be the decider. this would indicate that he's kind of changing his tune of attacking more to the metal. this term will tell because unlike the health care case, this coming term that has affirmative action and almost certainly voting rights took the big great subjects and rate has been his subject just like federalism was kennedy. roberts is entering his eighth term as the chief justice, so, early in his tenure in the case in 2007 where he said the way to stop discriminating by race is to stop discriminating by race he says as in validating an effort by the systems to keep public schools from resegregate in. he's eager to get into the subjects. what i expect attacking to the metal on those i don't think so but i'm not 100% sure it is the question of the moment. this is where the roberts court is about to meet the road there is a decision to be made between what a judge believes, and he deeply believes it is wrong for the government to classify or count people by race
affect the interstate commerce coming and for period of time, they even argued that this would cover all such land that could be the habitat for migratory birds. something that is commonly referred to as the goose test. what is interesting about the regulations that the epa enforced is that we know they cannot be enforced as written. the regulation as it is promulgated purport to reach what could affect the interstate commerce. we know in the united states versus lopez in 1995 the court decision since the commerce clause doesn't reach the mere potential on the commerce. there must be a substantial effect on the interstate commerce. the existing regulations don't require the substantial effect in fact they don't even require the actual effect. by their terms they only require a potential effect. they reach far beyond the scope of the federal commerce clause authority. the supreme court has twice been asked to consider the application of the regulations to the private land owners once in the case called swank. they did it merely to keep it in the constitutional bounds and in each case they

of the little people who work at the embassy, people who keep the commercial commerce office open, the people doing the wonderful work with n.g.o.'s to show them how to work, to build a free and new kind of society and also to the foreign nationals who work in you are eassy. so we think about you. i say to the leadership of those countries again, call for calm, call for tolerance. but i say to my colleagues here, we've got to call for calm and tolerance right in this institution. we've got to really support our men and women in the state department, our men and women in the milary, all who serve overseas are representatives of united states of america, whether you are the peace corps or the marine corps, whether you are the foreign service or the commercial svice or whatever, you're in the service of the united states of america, promoting our values trying to help promote democracy and also trying to have economic and strategic cooperation. i thank our foreign service staff, many of them live in maryland. but that's not the point. ey live in the united states of america. and so i say to all
people. when you go to kabul today, you see a city with electricity, with commerce, with cars, with movement, with women in school, and the average afghan doesn't want to go back to the taliban way of doing business where there is no music, there no interaction with each other, only on terms that they set for you. and so what you see on your television at night is a political struggle for the heart and soul of the middle east. this has been going on for a long time, and finally the lid blew. egypt was an authoritarian, corrupt dictatorship. tunisia, libya was ruled by qadhafi, syria by assad. and what you see is people who have seen another way of living are saying enough already. i'm not going to be part of that anymore. i'm going to try to change my life and my children's life. within that population, you also have people who are dead set on making sure that that nation and the islamic world goes backward, not forward, and we have to take sides. and if we don't take sides and we sit on the sidelines, we'll pay a price. i think it is better to help people fight the taliban th
to the u.s. hispanic chamber of commerce, and aides say he will be offering up some new specifics on the policies he would pursue if and when elected to the white house. president obama meantime is back in that all important swing state of ohio. here he is, campaign stop this morning, this was cincinnati. he has another event just about two hours from now in columbus. now, these two campaigns, they are, of course, battling it out for the state of ohio and it is really tough to tell who has an edge there. you see the numbers with me. this recent nbc wall street journal marist poll gives obama, a seven-point advantage. but then look at this. the american research group ohio poll shows the race is basically a tie. obama at 48%. romney at 47%. now, there is a word you are going to be hearing and we have talked about this, but you're going to be hearing this word more over the next couple of months, sequestration. it is really an inside the beltway word, a bureaucrat word, what does it mean? it means if congress doesn't find a way to agree on how to reduce the debt, those automatic cut
talking, at the hispanic chamber of commerce event where mitt romney was talking around this time yesterday. finally here, jim, you talk about timing, here we are, still counting 49 days until november 6th, the timing isn't great for the romney campaign to have to explain these remarks that, you know, yes, they were made last may, but just as you were explaining yesterday, the romney team is trying to reboot his campaign, are they not? >> reporter: that's right. that's what they were saying yesterday morning, that they were sort of retooling his economic message and that was a big reason why they were having this speech out in los angeles and obviously there is also the irony that he was reaching out to hispanics the same day that a videotape was coming out, showing him wishing he were latino, because that might improve his political prospects. i think the big problem for mitt romney in all of this is that there are things for liberals to not like here, things for conservatives to not like here. obviously if there are people who are perhaps in the middle and thinking about voting
